A motion calling the President to appoint a civilian as the Governor of the Northern Province had been passed in the Northern Province Council during its second sitting on Monday.

Kesavan Sayanthan brought forward the proposal calling the President to remove the present Governor Maj. Gen. (Rtd.) G.A.Chandrasiri from the post.
The proposal was seconded by Arumugam Ravikaran and the motion was passed.

The NPC Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran and the Tamil National Alliance had been calling for a non-military person to the post since September. ( S. Jeganatahan, Kunasegaran Suren and S. K. Prasath)

    nalaka, you can only decide whom you want in your house, not who should be in another person's house.

    Pls have another one to change the Kelaniya organizer also.

    I would say the NP is a fit case for dismissal and imposition of President's rule pending elections.

    Guruthuma Tuesday, 12 November 2013 11:37 AM

    Why not appoint a Tamil civilian like KP or Douglas Devananda?

    Guruthuma Tuesday, 12 November 2013 11:43 AM

    Time to do away with the PCs. What will happen if all the PCs demand the same?

    ram Tuesday, 12 November 2013 11:54 AM

    well timed and clever move to coincide with CHOGAM.

    Sriyani Tuesday, 12 November 2013 01:29 PM

    Suq Madique Tuesday, 12 November 2013 02:19 PM

    Yes the 2/3 want to keep him in Jaffna because they don't want to have to contend with another war.
